Applied researchIn cooperation with companies of different sectors, the University of Luxembourg Competence Centre has initiated a few research & development projects, focussing on applied research.
The major objective of these projects is to develop pragmatic and implementable methods and tools which will add value to the participating enterprises.It is one of the Competence Center's most important objectives that, as an outcome of its research projects, the results of these projects can be implemented in accordance with the Luxembourgish socio-economic situation.
The participating enterprises will thus be enabled to improve their performance or even to follow new managerial approaches or enhanced their current one. Moreover, the research concepts are not only based on an experimental approach, but are always closely aligned with the demand and the needs of the companies or institutions involved.
Therefore the Competence Centre is not pursuing a theoretical approach in its research projects, but is rather taking into account the companies’ real-life situation.
The projects on applied research are usually financed by the Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche (MESR) as well as by national or European institutions.
